Real Life VERSUS Blog Life

I don't post my link on my personal facebook page.

I don't have a facebook page for my blog.

I don't usually mention blogging in real life (unless of course it's with the hubs or when i'm hanging out with my blog turned real life friends)

Am I the only person who hasn't merged their real life with their blogging life?

It's not like I don't want my IRL friends to know that I blog.

I think it's maybe that I don't want my friends to "read" about my life. Or know how I feel behind closed doors? I make it a point to be pretty happy and put on a pretty good facade at school.

I'm not sure I want people to ACTUALLY know how I felt. And i'm just uncomfortable with my friends (or co-workers - even though MAJORITY of them I consider pretty CLOSE friends now) to read about all of my feelings and thoughts about school.

Even though I try to be mostly vague when writing about school (which is unfortunate, because there are SOO many things I WISH I could write about and get advice about when it comes to my occupation.) But, I also know what could and has happened to bloggers who blog about students, administration, co-workers, etc... THEY'RE FIRED.

Am I the only one who feels this way? Or the only one who keeps their BLOGGING life SEPARATE from their REAL life? If you do keep them separate, why? If you don't keep them separate, why? Thoughts?

What this leads me to is the fact that many of my Blog friends have turned into REAL friends, which I am SOOO very thankful for! That was one of the other main reasons why I started this blog... To connect to other people. To form relationships. To have that immediate connection to someone. I am SO lucky that I have those relationships now. And I hope to form MANY, MANY more with other bloggers!

I met up with some FABULOUS bloggers last night for the Houston Blogger Symposium Holiday Party hosted by Megan at Greetings from Texas! Thanks for having us Do or Dye TX!

Here is proof that a GRRREEEATTT time was had by all!
